Graduate Health Insurance for Fellowship and Assistantship Students

 The College of Graduate Studies pays for health insurance coverage for qualifying university fellowship students and assistantship students with appointments totaling 20 hours per week (even if two different appointments of 10 hours per week, as long as the total is 20 hours per week).

Those with a qualifying fellowship or assistantship in spring semester will also receive health insurance coverage in summer semester; you do not have to receive a summer fellowship or assistantship or be enrolled in summer semester. Students are required to accept or decline the coverage by submitting the Health Insurance Form in their myUCF Student Center. This policy will always be secondary to other health insurance that you may have.

The College of Graduate Studies will contact students who qualify to receive this paid health insurance with instructions on how to complete the Health Insurance Form. These communications will go to your Knights E-mail account.
